This webinar will provide accounting and tax professionals with a review of tax challenges for foreign investors in U.S. real estate, including form of ownership, IRS reporting obligations, and other matters.

Description

The U.S. tax rules governing investment in U.S. real estate by foreign nationals are complex, and tax professionals advising foreign investors must comprehend U.S. tax requirements for reporting and withholding. Advisers must evaluate various ownership structures to determine the most advantageous form for foreign investors.

There are tax planning opportunities beyond entity selection in structuring a deal. Tax advisers, counsel and tax executives must grasp the essential tax aspects when developing a plan for operating and disposing of property before closing a deal to avoid unanticipated U.S. tax liability for foreign investors down the road.

Listen as our panel of experienced tax professionals discusses key tax considerations and tactics for advisers to foreign investors buying, holding and disposing of U.S. real estate.
